Applications for the 2017-18 Joan Beebe Graduate Teaching Fellowship close on February 1. The Fellowship is available to all alumni of the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, including those who received the degree during the years the program was at Goddard College. Information on how to apply is a this link: APPLYING FOR THE BEEBE
HERE’S WHY YOU SHOULD DO IT:
From Alain Park (fiction, 2013), current Beebe Fellow:
What I see as most valuable to me as a Beebe Fellow is how the Fellowship condenses a wide range of teaching experiences into a single academic year. The fellowship provides the opportunity to gain experience on so many levels: teaching entry- as well as advanced-level and cross-genre courses, and guiding the upperclass creative writing majors. It would take years at other institutions to gain access to those kinds of teaching opportunities. And creating these courses from the ground up is also incredibly valuable; with the academic freedom you enjoy, you can truly make them your own.read more
